Overstay Fine Increase

Posted by davelliot on 5/6/2019 at 05:08

From May this year Indonesian overstay fine has increased to 70 $ a day .

'The reason is to give a deterrent effect to violating foreigners," said Agung Sampurno, Head of Public Relations and Data of the Directorate General of Immigration, as quoted by Detiknews.
Previously, the fine imposed was only $30 (Rp. 300,000), and Mr Sampurno said that the amount did not provide a deterrent effect for foreigners who violated their visas...'


Excerpt from SBS Indonesia news website.

Thanks for the post, had forgotten about this. It is now 1,000,000 rupiah per day. I'll update the visa section to reflect that in a sec.

Cheers

Hi Somtam . I think also the visa section also needs to be updated about Visa On Arrival .Apparently now the fee is 500,000 rps and not 35$ anymore -( has to be paid in rps ). And extension for VOA also costs 500000 rps for one month extension with no further extension possible,
